7:05 am
>> it is quite literally the most ridiculous theory i've ever heard that telling the voters what donald trump's a aual record is deceitful in lying. i invited mr. trump. i said, please, donald, file this lawsuit. >> reporter: also part of a town hall discussion, marco rubio echoed trump's charge that cruz is a serial liar. >> i said he has been lying because if you say something that isn't true and you say it over and over again and you know it's not true there is no other word for it. >eporter: rubio has the support of south carolina governor nikki haley. she stumbled out of the gate. >> this is one of many bruises i will take from marco rubio. we make presidents. let's make marco rubio the next president of the united states! god bless! >> reporter: rubio is now cornered the market onew establishment south carolina republican endorsements. haley, u.s. senator tim scott and congressman trey gowdy
7:06 am
party inspired political sense abilities and not enoughsure if it's enough to propel him past trump's campgn. john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: how do people make sense when they see competing national polls? >> well, they should tbeat them very, very gingerly. in febebary of 2012, rick santorum was up over mitt romney by about ten points. what they give us a sense of where the low information voter is. as primaries and caucuses, the ones we have been focusing on as the big gets more national and we have these big days like super tuesday, national polls give us a better sense as the contest gets bigger. we basically, right now, the game is in south carolina. >> how much of a difference do you think, john, governor haley's endorsement will make for marco rubio? >> in a year where the establishment is in such foul
7:07 am
i think establishment endorsements probably don't mean that much. way. nikki haley endorsed mitt romney and newt gingrich won the south carolina primary in 2012. so i think in the battle between marco rubio and jeb bush it's nice to have something on your side if you're marco rubio. in that respect, it helps. but it's not going to, i don't think, give him a huge boost in south carolina. >> john, in some ways, haley's endorsement ofofarco rubub a blow to jeb bush? apparently, former president george w. bush met privately with haley on monday to ask for that endorsement for his brother. >> jeb bush's argument is governors know it better than senators. he said i've had experience. so it would have been nicic to have a fellow governor say i agree with that. and so in the news cycles,, it's not good for jeb bush. he was trying to build a little something in south carolina. if he doesn't do well in south carolina, which means beating rubio, it's a real blow to his
7:08 am
so, yes, this is jeb bush would have liked this, but his challenges go well beyond the interests me about nevada. >> john, thank you so much. sources confirm to cbs news overnight that the white house is set to announce today that president obamama will make a historic visit to cuba. the short stop over in march will mark another huge step toward improving relations. the plan drew immediate criticism from critics, including republican presidential candidates. no sitting president has visited havana since calvin coolidge in 1928. there is your fun fact for the day. >> thank you,u, norah o'o'nnell. >> write that down. >> i'm writing it down.

7:10 am
iphone but millilis of devices. the white house defended the department of justice's request for apple to aid in an investigation. the president calls an important national prprrity. >> they are not asking apple to redesign its product or to create a new back door to one of their products. they are simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device. >> reporter: as the war on terror and the right to privacy collide, cnet's dan ackerman says apple and the fbi have competing and compelling interests. >> apple says if you promise you only use it once it's going to get used again and again and once you create the precedent of giving that access once you're not able toeny at ththtime next time. >> reporter: google's ceo posted a series of tweets wednesday citing with apple, saying we give law enforcement access to data based on valid legal orders, but that is wholly different than requiring
7:11 am
customer devices and data. in the two months since farook and his wife tashfeen malik killed 14 people in san bernardino, california, the fbi is poring over theirs electronic and internet history and discovered evidence that farook and malik sympathized with isis and other islamic radicals leading up to the terror attack. publicly, apple says it doesn't have the technology to do what the fbi wants but a top industry official tells cbs news that apple could theoretically write the software to comply with that ruling. a los angel hospital admits it paid nearly $17,000 in ransom to hackers. the fbi is investigating the cyber attack that disabled the computer network at the hollywood presbyterian medical center. carter evans is at the hospital with the story behind the ransom good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the hospital says patient care was not affected by the attack
7:12 am
running again. authorities are now searching for these h hkers who were paid with bit coin. a digital currency that is nearly impossible to trace. and while the hospital says it notified law enforcement immediately, we are now learning that may not be the case. in a brazen attack, hackers disabled the computer network of the hollywood presbyterian medical center. a source familiar with the investigation tells cbs news, the hospital paid the nearly $17,000 ransom to take back control before contacting law in a statement, the president of the hospital said, the quickest and most efficient way to restore our systems was to pay the ransom. >> if they decide to pay the ransom, it probably means they didn't have very good backups and weren't able to recover the data and that t t data would have been lost if they didn't pay the ransom. >> reporter: on february 5th, hackers infiltrated the hospital's computer network what is known as ransomware that held
7:13 am
on the network hostage and making it accessible only with the use of a decryption key provided after ransom was paid. >> hospitals are a very big target now. >eporter: dave kennedy runs a cyber security firm and has experience with these type of attacks. he says after highly publicized data breaches involving credit card companies hackers are moving on to easier targets and many hospitals have been slow to adequately secure their networks. a 2015 study found that criminal cyberattacks on health care organizazaons have increased 125% since 2010 and the danger can sometimes be life threaten. >> when the ransom pieces affect the machines it's causing the system to stop fununioning and can definitely impact life and systems that support life. >> reporter: now if hackers are able to gain access to medical records, they will have social security number and other private information that could be sold on the black market.
7:14 am
it's the smaller networks like hospitals and schools that are ransomware tacks. >> thaha you, carter. this morning, cbs news poll shows americans are split over the president's plan to nominate a successor to supreme court justice antonin scalia. 47% in our poll says the president should choose a nomination this year and 46% say the nomination should be made after the november election. margaret brennan is at the white house with reaction. >> reporter: good morning. president obama decision to skip the saturday funeral of justice scalia is being seen by some as a snub of the conservative judge. and a missed opportunity by others.. former obamamadministration official steve ratner said if we
7:15 am
with. the president will pay his respects o friday when ska lee''s body is in repose at the supreme court. there is no protocol. while george w. bush delivered the eulogy at justice rankin's funeral his predecessor bill clinton attended two services others. the white house won't say whether it was the president's schedule or security concerns or bow out. but, nora it has become yet another politically charged moment ahead of that fierce battle to fill justice scalia's seat. >> thank you, margaret. turkey blames this morning a syrian with ties to a kurdish militia for a devastating bomb attack. the car bomb attack killed 28 people and hit dozenses more in ankara, the capital cityty turkey vows too retaliate for the attacks.
